Lasagna Soup

Hearty tomato soup, seasoned with Italian spices and loaded with ground beef and lasagna noodles. Each serving is finished off with a mixture of ricotta, mozzarella, and parmesan cheese to make each bite taste just like lasagna!
Servings: 8 servings


For the lasagna soup:

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil divided
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 large yellow onion diced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • cups chicken broth
  • 1 14.5 ounce can petite diced tomatoes do not drain
  • 14 ounces crushed tomatoes
  • tablespoons tomato paste
  • teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • ½ teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 8 lasagna noodles
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

For the ricotta cheese topping:

  • 5 ounces mozzarella cheese shredded
  • 8 ounces ricotta cheese grated
  • ½ cup parmesan cheese
  • salt and pepper (to taste)


  • In a large pot set to medium heat, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and the lean ground meat. Cook until browned, about 4 minutes. Drain the fat and set meat aside.
  • Place pot back on the burner and turn heat to medium. Add remaining tablespoon of olive oil. Add garlic to cook a little until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add onion and cook until it begins to get tender, about 5 minutes.
  • Add in chicken broth, crushed tomatoes, diced tomatoes, spices, cooked meat, and tomato paste. Stir together to combine. Bring to a boil and then lower to a simmer and cover. Cook for 10 minutes.
  • Break lasagna noodles and add to soup. Stir to submerge noodles in soup. Cover again and continue to cook for 10 more minutes. Give the soup a taste. Season with salt and pepper, as needed. Finish with 2 tablespoons of fresh chopped parsley.
  • Mix together ricotta, mozzarella, and parmesan cheese together until combined. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve each bowl of soup with about 2-3 tablespoons of the cheese mixture.


For leftovers, store soup and cheese mixture separately. To reheat, cook soup in microwave until steaming, about 1.5 minutes per servings. Serve with cheese mixture.
